It is really amazing ... An individual asks his peers in the mailing list for
help... "Guys, how to set up a cron ? Which one to choose ?"
And receives about 20 messages of utter bullshit - "what should be in the book,
what the theoretically clean way is, what philosophical implications are, etc."
Does anybody remembers what the original message was about ?
Gentlemen, who are you ?
Decision makers ?
VPs in marketing ?
Corporate spokespersons ?
"Certified Linux-blah,blah, Creators-blah,blah ?"
Some other kind of the verbose nonentity ?
Suddenly I felt like I am in the wrong company.
Let me give you a honest advice - if you really want to please your ego, do
something for others.
No one will respect you just because "Next weekend I'm going to do ... blah".
It is just as interesting as "I'm sure I need to visit men's room right now".
What have you done ???
Can I see it ???
Has anybody seen "The Good, the Bad, the Ugly" ?
- If you came to shoot, then shoot, don't talk ...
